Good Mail

Fellow Canadian CrafteristasTM, do not despair, for I bring you proof that , despite the Canada Post strike, it is indeed still possible to have one's spirits entirely lifted by a Really Good Mail Day.


Quince & Co. Tern, aka my Congrats-on-running-the-half-marathon! yarn.



Assorted fabric bundles, to be used in the We can do it! Skill Builder Sampler I'm starting next week.


I'm still waiting on a coupla goodies, but still, that was a pretty yum mail day. Am I right?

With no active projects on the needles (What's that about a green scarf? What??? You're breaking up, I can't hear you!!!), I was free to swatch and cast on with the Tern pretty much as soon as I opened the package. I'm (finally) going to be making the Akoya cardigan. Insert happy sigh :: here ::


When I'm not busy sewing, of course...


Have a great weekend, everyone!

Great choice for the cardigan.

Damn that strike, eh? It's damn annoying, especially since we rely on Canada Post as there isn't another option!

Glad you got some good mail despite the strike!

Woohoo! You're a quilting star- I can't wait to see your sampler- what a fun way to learn the techniques!

That blue lifted my spirits up a bit as soon as I saw it... lol! I think Akoya is worthy, though :D

Oh be still my heart! That yarn is serious goodness. Akoya is going to look amazeballs in that. And the fabric! ooh.
